AllianceHealth Seminole is one of only 946 hospitals out of more than 3,600 across the country that has been rated a four-star hospital by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) on its Hospital Compare website.
According to CMS, the intent of the Hospital Compare website and the star ratings is to help patients and their families learn about the quality of hospitals and compare facilities in their area. The goal is also to help patients be better equipped to ask important questions about quality of care when visiting a hospital or other health care provider.
“We’re very proud of our hospital team members for their strong and shared commitment to patient satisfaction, quality, and safety. While we are thrilled with our progress, we will continue to push for improvement until we reach 5-stars.” said AllianceHealth Seminole CEO Adam Bracks. “Our physicians, nurses and clinicians continue to work hard every day to provide quality care that the Seminole community deserves.”
AllianceHealth Seminole exceeded the national average and is in the top 10% for Timeliness of Care and 30 Day Unplanned Readmissions measures. AllianceHealth Seminole also is better than the national average in 30 day mortality for COPD and Heart Failure.
In a survey of patients’ experiences, AllianceHealth Seminole ranked in the top 25% in the nation for cleanliness and quietness of the hospital environment. In addition, 2017 data demonstrated communication with doctors, pain management, responsiveness of hospital staff and communication of medications also ranked nationally in the top 25%.
“We are proud to provide such quality care so close to home for the residents of Seminole. We remain dedicated to being a great place for patients to receive care.” Bracks said.
